The artist James R. Ford glued 4,000 toy cars to a standard Ford Capri and turned it into “The General Lee” vehicle from The Dukes of Hazzard. The end result looks like the Ford has been hand-weaved.

Notes about the making of this project by James R. Ford:

Transforming a second-hand Ford Capri into the General Lee, from the Dukes of Hazzard, by covering it in little toy cars. Over four thousand toy cars were needed and so, in addition to searching out and purchasing appropriate toy cars himself, an appeal was started for people all over the world to send the artist their disused toy cars. The donator could write a little message on the toy car, or mark it in some other way, so they actually became part of the art whilst contributing to the sculpture.
